From Egg to Chick

On February 4, twenty eggs arrived in Grace's classroom. They were able to candle the eggs to see the growing embryos inside. Each day they looked at pictures of what the embryos should look like at that day's stage of development and learned about the changes that were taking place. On day 19, two of the babies hatched! By day 21, sixteen had hatched! Four eggs never hatched which is something they were told to expect. They had to say goodbye to their fuzzy friends last Thursday afternoon because they knew it was time for the chicks to go back to the farm. This was an amazing unit in which all of the students were engaged and excited!
